BigTech, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this router as a wireless bridge out to my detached garage. Loaded Tomato on it and it has great range and speed. I used it in the garage as a link for my High Res security camera worked perfectly.

  • Summary: I purchased this router to add wifi to a 5 unit CBS guesthouse.I assumed at the cost of $160 that I would be getting better signal strength than my $40 Westell router!I got a significantly weaker signal.As a router this unit would be ok at about a $40 pricetag.I found nothing about it to justify a...

Warning - Unstable Product

Nicholas J. Steblay, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought two of these for my church. I struggled with these products for 4 months before finally convincing the VAR to let me return them. There are severe bugs in the firmware and possibly the hardware. I went through 4 RMAs with Netgear before giving up on the product.

works, but lots of trial and error due to poor documentation

P. Edstrom, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: Got 2 of these to make a local area network between myself and neighbor down the street. We have what I think is a fairly simple network (router to ap to remote ap), and between the awful documentation, terible support (besides language issues, they just won't answer the questions you ask), and a...

Not worth it

Ed, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: Just about the only thing good about this unit is how easy it is to setup. This AP is not worth paying extra for. I have personally demoted this "business class" AP to home use...which sadly doesn't even perform well in such conditions where multiple wireless stations are present in the environment...

Needs a repeater to work well

Robert Solomon, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought this access point to provide wireless coverage to a 2 story colonial house. Even with a Netgear ANT24D18 Ant 18DBI Patch Panel attached, it provided less coverage than what I was using before, a Netgear WPN802 v1.

Long time WG302 user

Awkemacs, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: Three years and running. The wg302 is excellent. Of, course early on, I had to wait for bug fixes and enhancements via updates to the firmware. But overall this item is excellent. I cannot understand the low ratings of others. I wonder if you just have network configuration issues.

Good, reliable, sturdy wireless option.

tela, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: 2011 EDIT: This unit's SSL certificate has expired and is no longer accessible via the web interface! I have read up on it, and apparently the way to correct it is to make sure the unit does NOT find the correct time. Leave it in 2006. Netgear of course offers ZERO support for this problem.

They work well for me

Veijo N. Jones, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: I have six of these installed in my main office and three outdoors to connect several buildings. I'm not sure why the other reviews are so negative. On the indoor six units I'm running RADIUS authentication on a Windows 2003 network and it works flawlessly.

Poor setup, terrible support, good range

J. Macfarlane, Amazon
25 February 2005
  • Summary: I purchased 3 of these APs with the expectation to replace 3 Cisco "b" APs and drop in. The setup used Radius for authentication which is claimed to be supported in both the online info and docs.
